Good point, Andrew. But I,too, do not understand the "hand out of the toilet" comment or referenced source. Please share the origin. Thanks. 19Dec17

It's a reference to a scene that features in a couple of games in the Zelda franchise. The hand belongs to a ghost, who asks Link (the character one plays in the game) for paper.

Apparently, the inspiration came from Japanse ghost stories. I won't elaborate, in case anyone wants to sleep tonight, but here is the source.

I, a native speaker of English, would not say you are wrong but your sentence is awkward and old-fashioned.

Nei! No! Misunderstanding isn't here. This is Norwegian. Misunderstanding is next door.. in Duolingo French! (Don't go to the end. That's Danish. They talk funny.)

Duolingo does this sometimes; provides sentences that are so bizarre they stick firmly in conciousness. Yes, they are having fun with us... but if we understand what the sentence really says, the purpose of language has been achieved... and memorably.
